The new version will include Japanese voice-overs, an in-game digital soundtrack, art book from the PC version, and developer commentary.
Library of Ruina is a turn-based strategy RPG that follows the story of a fixer, Roland, who is made to work for Head Librarian, Angela. They invite guests to fight Librarians with the stipulation that if they win they get to take any book they want, but if they lose they get turned into books. This is all done with the goal of Angela finding the one book that will let her become human. The battle system revolves around using cards and dice, the Librarian and guest select cards strategically according to the one chosen by the other, and dice rolls decide the effectiveness.
